From my understanding I will take a bus from Yangshuo to Yangshuo railway, where I will take train to Guangzhou, then transfer to train to Hong kong, then take subway to Hong kong airport.

Stroller in Guilin Reed Flute Cave
We'll be visiting with our 18 months old. Can I bring a stroller into the cave or do we need to carry him for the whole tour?

Answered by Claire from GERMANY | Apr. 02, 2019 20:54

As I know, the scenic area doesn't provide the stroller. Thus you need to carry him for the whole tour.
